Unicorn Hat on Pi3, blank


#1

Pi3

Unicorn Hat was working on this Pi yesterday, everything was shutdown properly.
Today it wouldn’t boot, so installed new NOOBS OS

Distributor ID: Raspbian
Description: Raspbian GNU/Linux 9.1 (stretch)
Release: 9.1
Codename: stretch

Installing Unicorn Hat software with “curl https://get.pimoroni.com/unicornhat | bash” gives the following warning

“Support for your operating system is experimental. Please visit
forums.pimoroni.com if you experience issues with this product.”

Running the examples, nothing happens.


#2

Any output at all from the examples?

Is this a Unicorn HAT or Unicorn HAT HD?


#3

The only output is the text in the terminal Window, nothing whatsoever on the U/H (not HD)

BUT! Swapped it onto a Pi Zero, where it worked just fine! :)
Swapped it back to the Pi3, where it’s now quite happy.

Very odd… :-|

Could have been a loose connection or something. Glad you’re up and running!
